What is the limitation of 'GuiSetControl'?

5 posts in this topic

Check this ugly script

global $x=0

GuiCreate ("",730,450)
while 1
myfunc ()
wend


Func myfunc ()
    mygui ()
    $x=$x+1
    sleep (500)      
EndFunc
;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

;-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Func mygui ()
    GuiSetControl ("label", "Current iteration is " & $x, 10,30,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,60,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,70,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,80,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,90,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,100,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,110,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,120,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,130,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,140,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,150,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,160,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,170,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,180,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,190,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,200,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,210,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,220,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,230,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,240,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,250,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,260,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,270,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,280,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,290,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,300,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,310,700,20)
    GuiSetControl ("label", "abcd", 10,320,700,20)
  
    GuiShow ()
EndFunc

Currently, the GUI stops refreshing at iteration #18.

What is the exact limitation? :ph34r:

10x

Only 500-ish controls can be created. That's right around that number.

I see. What can be done?

I have to display this window with all these parameters every few seconds. Can I somehow use GUIHIDE () to start the limitation counter?

If you can base on my code submitted, it will be GREAT!!! :ph34r:

You have a serious error in your logic going on there. You are creating a new control every time. You need to store the control references, then use GuiWrite() to change what the controls display.

I'll use GuiWrite ().
